LOC Flourishing

It is time to show you another card made with the New Release Stamps from Layers of Color, this set is called Flutterescent  - how beautiful is this butterfly...those wings look like they just want lift off the card and fly!!

I used the flourish from the Nature Walk set and stamped them in a circle to create the feeling of movement, I lightly chalked these flourishes and tore along the right edge.  Torn and embossed corners have been added and flowers with pearl centres added in the middle of these!



The butterfly has been coloured with chalks and then cut out...I have only attached the body to the DP so that the wings are free to stand up....Kindy Glitz has been added lightly to the wings- you can see the sparkle here!



This card was very quick and simple to make...don't you just love it when that happens.  I usually take a lot longer with my cards, so this was a pleasant change!!  Be sure to pop over to Layers of Color and see what the other designers have made with this set - they are so talented and their work is so inspiring!!

This card qualifies for the Creative Card Crew Challenge which is about Favoutite Things - and butterflies are among my TOP favouites, our family loves to see them in the garden!

Thank you for looking and for your encouraging comments - you are always so very kind!  I love knowing that you have been.  I will have another card for you soon, this week we are showing off three sets - there is much to see!  God bless you!

  6. Delightful and elegant. I to have a weakness for butterflies . As you know I am not too fond of the mosquito and the other day I was stung by a bee opening the gate. A butterfly is so graceful and does not hurt anyone.
    Great card Linda X Chriss
